I want space!

Salary cap space is the most important number the Eagles are looking at, this number will determine wheter Nnamdi Asomugha, Albert Haynesworth, and others is an Eagle or NOT. With all these transactions, is this number a fluke-, or possibly a go ahead for us to sign those big names in Free Agency?



As of right now, our free space should range from 45  to 60 million dollars.




 The Unsigned,- Who stays, and who leaves and how much expected money we save from losing them

Micheal Vick: Resigned, salary next year: around 20 million

KK: gone, 1 million dollars saved

Jerome Harrison: gone, about 2 million dollars saved

Eldra Buckley: Resigned, salary:1 million dollars

Owen Shmitt: Resigned, salary: 2 million dollars

Desean Jackson: Resigned, salary: 9 million dollars

Sinorice Moss: Gone, but practice squad should be expected, half a million saved.

King Dunlap: Stays, salary: 3 million dollars

Max-Jean-Gilles: Gone, 3 million dollars saved

Mike McGlynn: stays 1.5 million dollar salary

Nick Cole: Gone: 1 million dollars saved

Jaqua Parker: Gone due to depth, 3 million dollars saved

Victor Abiarimi: Gone, 1 million dollars saved

Broderick Bunkley: Gone, 5 million dollars saved

Trevor Laws: Resigned, salary 4 million dollars

Antonio Dixon: Resigned, salary 5 million dollars

Ernie Sims: Long gone, saved 5 million dollars

Stewart Bradley: Gone, saved 3 million dollars

Omar Gaither: Gone, saved a million dollars

Akeem Jordan: Resigned for 2 million dollars

Ellis Hobbs: Gone, saved 3 million dollars

Dmitri Patterson; Gone, 1 million dollars saved

Quentin Mikell: Gone, 6 million dollars saved

Marlin Jackson: Gone, 1 million dollars saved

David Akers: Gone, 1 million dollars saved

Sav Rocca: saved, 1 million dollar salary

Leanord Weaver: Gone, 1 million saved

About $25,000,000-30,000,000 should be used for the resigning, but that huge number will be whimpered to 10-12 million due to the money saved from all the releases.

Also, the budget for our 2011 draft picks should look like this(New CBA rule in effect)

Round 1 Pick 23 ................$2,500,000
Round 2 Pick 54 ..................$965,000
Round 3 Pick 85 ..................$515,000
Round 4 Pick 103 ................ $420,000
Round 4 Pick 119................  $340,000

5 million dollars will be used for rookie signings. That means around 17 million dollars will be cut in to our free space.

 

 

Worst Case Scenario:Our original free space is only 45-49 million dollars. With 17 million dollars projected to resignings and rookies, our free agency cap is 28-32 million dollars.This is still a great position to sign many free agents compared to other teams, but we could do better.Hopefully this doesn't happen, but again, I wouldn't be too dissapointed.

Medium Case Scenario:Our original free space is  50-54 million dollars. With 17 million dollars projected to resignings and rookies, our free agency cap is 33-37 million dollars.This is a great position to sign many free agents , but we still could do better.This is our most likely target zone

Best Case Scenario:Our original free space is  55-60 million dollars. With 17 million dollars projected to resignings and rookies, our free agency cap is 38-42 million dollars.This is a great position to sign many free agents, this isn't extremely likely, but I wouldn't be stunned at all if we have this space.

 

We have the gun cocked in free agency, literally. Even if Nnamdi were signed for around 17 million under the worst case scenario, we'd still have 11-15 million dollars left over for other players.
